since i have been lazy about getting out my camera lately, i got to steal their pictures before they left- thanks again, otherwise, i would not have any from their trip. (note to self: take more pictures, blog more)
playing on the sand cliff at sunset.
the last few weeks the girls and i have been meeting luke on north shore in the afternoons when he is on his way home from work. these are my favorite afternoons. luke and i take turns surfing and playing with the girls- we go on walks, climb rocks, swim, find shells, boogie board "surf" which the girls are getting good at- as long as there aren't really waves! and when there are not waves we meet up and the four of us play- and we are really good at playing at the beach. one of our favorite things to do is go to the "sand cliffs" and jump/roll down so the girls were really excited to show their grandma's the sand cliffs. we decided pictures don't do the cliffs justice, so we took some quick video
luke and i are also pretty good at digging holes in the sand. i love these pictures cause it's totally what happens every time we are at sunset- we dig and velz and ivy jump in.
and of course we had to introduce the grandma's to alligator pond- where velzy jumped off the rocks and swam all over the place like she owned it. if you could see her face, you would see her cheeks all puffed up and extreme concentration.
ivy got really into surfing on the boogie boards. she is so funny, takes it totally serious and has got some pretty good balance.
